Olley’s up for top national fish and chip award
Olley’s Fish Experience in Herne Hill has been named one of the best fish and chip shops in the UK.
The popular chippy, where you can eat in or takeaway, has made it to the top 60 independent fish and chip takeaways at The National Fish & Chip Awards - one of only two shops in London to make the grade.
To get this far, Olley’s has been judged against vigorous criteria including frying skills, menu development and innovation, sustainable sourcing policies, staff training processes and marketing techniques.
Over the coming weeks, Olley's will undergo further in-depth judging with the aim of making the Top 20, then Top 10, before the final stage of judging in London in January 2018.
Olley’s owner Harry Niazi comments: “The National Fish & Chip Awards are the Oscars of the fish and chip world so we’re ecstatic to be shortlisted for such a prestigious award.
“We pride ourselves in delivering top quality food, we buy the best ingredients, we cook them with care and attention and we serve them in a warm, friendly environment. Although we’ve done very well to get this far, we want to go all the way, so please do come in and wish the team luck!”
Marcus Coleman, Chief Executive at Seafish, the body that organises the awards, said: “This award showcases the best of the best, the local fish and chip shops that we all love to eat from. The calibre of shops in this year’s top 60 is outstanding – they are a true representation of our industry and sum up perfectly why British fish and chips are, and will always be, the best in the world."
